Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup)

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Yesterday was the first official day of Fall and I think the best thing on a chilly Fall night is warm soup, chili, and other slow cooker style meals. Potato soup definitely ranks up at the top of my list of favorite soups to make in the fall and winter months. The potato soup recipe I bring to you today is a delicious, hearty potato soup that’s fairly easy to make and will make your house smell wonderful while it’s cooking. As with most soups, there’s always room for modification but personally I think this recipe is amazing just the way it is. Give this recipe a try on an upcoming chilly fall night and I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as I do. As always, feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter so you don’t miss any new recipe posts.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

  • 6 Bacon Slices, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 2 (10.5 oz) cans Condensed Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups Water
  • 5 Large Potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Dill Weed
  • 1/2 tsp Ground White Pepper
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Half-and-Half Cream
  • 1 (12 oz) can Evaporated Milk

1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned; remove from pan and set aside for later.
2. Add the onion and garlic to the bacon grease remaining in the pan and cook over medium-high heat until the garlic is fragrant and the onions are soft; drain off the excess grease and transfer them to the slow cooker.
3. To the slow cooker, add the chicken broth, water, potatoes, salt, dill weed, and white pepper; stir to combine, cover, and cook on LOW 6 to 7 hours, stirring occasionally.
4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and half-and-half and add it to the slow cooker along with the evaporated milk; turn the slow cooker to HIGH, cover, and cook another 30 minutes before serving.
5. Add the bacon just before serving or to the individual bowls of soup as a garnish.
